Oklahoma City recently joined the NBA family with the relocation and rebranding of the Seattle Superonics. Now known as The Thunder, the team plays its 41 home games in the heart of our home town.
In light of this event, American Way magazine has showcased the city in two separate articles across its last two issues. The first article, in its February 1st issue, includes “what to do and see” recommendations from several local personalities including civic leaders, business owners, and media. From French bistros to dive bars and “cowboy museums” to crew style rowing, the list of recommendations provides a great cross section of the varied cultural and lifestyle attractions available in the city.
Which brings us to Linda Cavanaugh, a long time resident and Oklahoma City media personality who serves as an anchor on KFOR-TV’s news channel 4 . When it comes to western wear, Linda proclaims “Langston’s is it.” Specifically, she is directing readers to our Stockyards City store, which is just a short drive or trolley ride from downtown where the Thunder plays their home games at the Ford Center. Located in a historically renovated building, the store serves as both a retail store and tourist attraction. With many western themed businesses in the Stockyards, run by skilled craftsman with a passion for western culture and lifestyle, Stockyards City is actually a great place for all things western.
For a more in depth look at the NBA in Oklahoma City, the latest issue of American Way magazine contrasts the NBA’s newest venue with one of its most revered, New York’s Madison Square Garden, home of the New York Knicks. Titled City Game, Cowboy Style, the piece is an enlightening and in depth look at two very different markets that are now linked by one great game. It certainly has convinced me to make sure I catch a game at the Garden soon, if for nothing else, for the hot dog on the way in. (Speaking of, anyone think we can get those guys at Coney Island on Main Street to open a stand outside the Ford Center?…)
We got ‘em. Come by the autograph session to receive 2 FREE ticket vouchers with every Ariat Boots purchase. This is only available at Langston’s in Stockyards City.
For more information on the event and to purchase tickets, visit the PBR Express Classic information page. In the meantime, check out PBR.TV, a very cool place to get the latest PBR news as well as watch the best rides and wrecks. Here’s the latest video:
Our home state of Oklahoma has produced its share of musical talent over the years. From Woodie Guthrie to The Flaming Lips, Oklahoma has been home to many genre-defining artists that have reached the pinnacle of their field or even changed it forever. Whether they have been inspired by the state’s rustic geography, rugged individualistic culture, or laid back lifestyle, it has been typical for Oklahoma musicians to reinvent the sounds of the past to create something new for today.
One of the latest examples of Oklahoma’s musical ingenuity is found in what is known as Red Dirt Music. Much like its indie rock counterpart, sometimes it is easier to define it by what it is not than to try and nail down one or two characteristics of the genre that set it apart. While Red Dirt is always country music, it is not of the TOP 40 variety you hear in heavy rotation on your FM radio. While the latter seems to have worked hard to polish out or completely ignore its roots, Red Dirt embraces many forms of Americana that have influenced or been influenced by country music, including rock and roll, blues, dixieland, swing, bluegrass, and more. The result is country music that seems more genuine, more real, and more raw. Basically, it is country music with its soul still intact.
Modern Red Dirt has grown past its Stillwater, Oklahoma roots and is now a staple of thriving music scenes across Texas, Tennessee, and throughout the region. To keep up with this exciting and evolving genre, Tony “The Rooster” Brown has graciously agreed to blog about all things Red Dirt for us, including interviews, reviews, and trends while keeping us up to date on the events surrounding his show Red Dirt: Live that is currently in development. You can read Tony’s first post and all his subsequent posts in the Red Dirt: Live section. Take it away, Tony…
Just stop by one of our four metro Oklahoma City locations (Stockyards City, I-240 and Shields, Midwest City, and Yukon) and purchase any Wrangler items and you’ll receive a voucher for free tickets to the IFR. It’s one of the great rodeo events of the year and you can go for free just by purchasing that pair of jeans or western shirt by Wrangler that you wanted, but didn’t get for Christmas. Consider it a present from us to you.
That’s right. The 47th Annual IPRA & IFR is here, and the festivities don’t stop until Sunday. Starting on the 11th with the Miss Rodeo USA 2009 Pageant and ending with the final rodeo performances and the IPRA World Championship Awards Banquet at the Biltmore Hotel on the 18th. As always, the IFR Western Trade Show will get going on Friday at 6:00p and runs through Sunday, so get out there and see all the great merchandise. I have a feeling you might find something great.
Anyway, round up the family and hit the fairgrounds this week. We’ve linked to the official schedule on the IFR home page, and believe me, there’s plenty to do. So go catch your favorite rodeo starsand see them prove that they’re some of the toughest athletes on the planet, yet again.
Check their website for all the dates and times. Starting at 11:00a on Saturday the 17th, OG&E’s Kid Day will offer lots of great activities including contests, autograph sessions, roping instruction, or you can even see how to make a genuine cowboy hat. All activities at Kids’ Day are free, and most of them are even educational. So come down to the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds this week and get in on the excitement.
Today marks what is commonly considered the busiest shipping day of the year. We know you’re probably worn out from camping all night to be the first one to grab that new 60″ 1080p Plasma screen TV so you can catch every grain of dust and drop of sweat of the next PBR event from the comfort of your couch. You’re probably a little sore from battling the masses for the next great Elmo doll that they never seem to stock enough of. Or maybe you’re just too full to move after stuffing yourself with all that turkey and, well, stuffing. It’s possible that in all that chaos you completely forgot to get those jeans you get for you in laws, those new boots your promised your spouse, or maybe you just don’t quite fit into your own jeans anymore after the start of the holiday season.
Well, don’t get up. Head on over to the online store and shop our great selection of jeans, cowboy boots, and western shirts. We even have a few western gifts this year for that person that deserves something a little more unique. And the best part is, we’ll ship it for free. No minimums, required purchases, or any other hoops to jump through. Just fill your shopping cart with as little or as much western wear goodies as you want, select Ground as your shipping method, and enter freeship08 in the coupon field at checkout, or just click the link below and it will be entered for you:
